New Project Announcement: Analysing Comprehensive Euregional Data (ACED)
May 8, 2024

The key to better healthcare is collecting and analyzing data across borders, and that’s exactly what ACED is designed to do.

A key part of ACED is analyzing health data from the YES 2023 project. This project collected information on the health and well-being of 13-17-year-olds in the ERMN region. Between September and November 2023, 18,840 young people from 100 schools took part in the survey, providing a wealth of information for this new project to explore.

The ACED project will run from May 1, 2024, to April 30, 2025, and it focuses on two main activities. First, GGD Zuid Limburg (NL) will lead the analysis of the YES 2023 data. Second, the results will be shared with the public through the Euregional Health Atlas (EHA), a platform already used to share health-related information in the Euregio Meuse-Rhine (EMR). The ACED project will expand this platform to include ERMN data. To ensure the public can easily understand the findings, a factsheet will be produced in both German and Dutch, and a press release will be issued.

The ACED project is funded by the Interreg programme Deutschland-Nederland and its programme partners, with additional funding from the European Union. This project is a big step towards better healthcare in the Euregio Rhine-Meuse North, providing the data needed to create effective health strategies.
